Political Education and Arts Collective: Author Talk with Mark Nowak

September 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Mark Nowak, poet, founder of the Worker Writers School, and author of Social Poetics (Coffee House Press, 2020), joins the Houston DSA Arts Collective and Political Education Committee for a discussion of cultural organizing and its role in building socialism. The event will include a reading, moderated Q&A, and open discussion. Come join us September 17 from 7-8:30PM.

Nowak’s Worker Writers School is a cultural organizing project that holds poetry workshops for labor unions and other leftist and working-class organizations. His new book, Social Poetics, chronicles the neglected radical, working-class history of the poetry workshop, while also exploring the possibilities of socialist cultural organizing in the present.
